Although Europe may have been enjoying holiday during August, here in the Philadelphia metropolitan area (with apparently the second worst driving experience across the United States) our Client Outreach team — comprised of José, Mara, Monica, Maia, Sarah, Helen, and Will — was scouring the web for information on new individuals and companies to add to our quite substantial client database. We have an entire team whose job is devoted just to this task because it is so important.
During August our team added 70 individuals to our records and updated 784; the team added 204 companies and updated 1,824.
We sent out 7 stock requests to our member photographers, from clients including HarperCollins, PACE/AAA Living, Der Spiegel, as well as an unnamed financial company.
In August we sent out three Creative In Place email campaigns, on the themes Happy Hour, Pets, and Back to School. We also hosted a Member Open House on Instagram Best Practices, which was a lively and edifying discussion with Jemma Dilag and Cliff Willson.
It is our pleasure to announce that the Creative In Place Pets campaign secured the licensing of a number of images for member photographers.
